Room-by-Room Fypon Product Guide

MAUMEE, OHIO – When it comes time to enhance the interior of your home, look no further than easy-to-install polyurethane millwork pieces from Fypon. Crafted to enhance various rooms of the home, Fypon pieces resist moisture and humidity, so they're ideal for use throughout the entire house.

An easy do-it-yourself project, Fypon pieces are lightweight and can accent the walls, ceilings and elements of any room. To get you started, the experts at Fypon recommend these room-by-room enhancements using their millwork products.

Projects for the Kitchen

Project 1 - Install lightweight faux beams to the ceiling of your kitchen to add dimension and style to the room.

Project 2 – To accent a ceiling fan or lighting fixture in the kitchen, install a two-piece Fypon ceiling medallion. The interlocking pieces fit snuggly together so you don't have to worry about dealing with the electrical systems.

Project 3 – If your home has an open space (about the size of a window opening) between the kitchen and the dining room or family room, add lightweight urethane shutters to flank the open area to enhance the room.

Project 4 – For a fast accent piece over a doorway or window in the kitchen, add a decorative millwork piece, such as a sunburst pediment or a keystone. The moisture-resistant urethane pieces can be painted or faux finished to complement your kitchen's decor.

Project 5 - Install corbels and appliqués to the top of cabinets to present a more finished look in your kitchen. And, upgrade the look of a boring kitchen island by adding decorative brackets or corbels as accent pieces.

Projects for the Bathroom

Project 1 - Install a set of pilasters on both sides of your shower stall and a door crosshead overhead to upgrade the look of your bathroom. No problem if the panels get wet because the urethane pieces resist moisture.

Project 2 - Surround mirrors in the bathroom with painted or stained urethane mouldings. Paint, faux finish or stain the mouldings to complement the room.

Project 3 – To add a touch of elegance to your bathroom setting, install a small wall niche in a focal point of the room. Use for displaying a flower arrangement or piece of artwork to carry through the theme of your bathroom.

Project 4 – Look up … and add mouldings to your bathroom. Steam rises from showers and sinks, but that’s not a problem when using these moisture-resistant mouldings. An easy project is to install crown mouldings in your bathroom to add distinction to the room.

Project 5 – Install brackets or corbels either underneath or on top of bathroom cabinets or shelves to add dimension and visual appeal.

Projects for the Bedroom

Project 1 – Add a large sunburst window pediment above a bed to serve as a decorative headboard.

Project 2 – Install a two-piece Fypon ceiling medallion around the top of a light fixture or ceiling fan. The interlocking pieces fit snuggly together so you don’t have to take down the fixture or mess with electrical systems.

Project 3 – Top off the interiors of windows in the bedroom with a pediment above a window surround. Be bold and add a rams head, sunburst, peaked cap or acorn pediment to draw attention to the windows.

Project 4 – Create a unique window treatment by securely installing a pair of urethane brackets on either side of a window.  Insert a dowel rod through the bracket openings and drape with lightweight fabric for a fast and easy decorative window treatment.

Project 5 – Make the transition from the master bedroom to the bathroom an elegant experience by surrounding the door with pilasters and a crosshead with a keystone accent piece to draw attention to the doorway.

Projects for the Dining Room

Project 1 – Chair rail moulding, originally designed to prevent people from damaging walls when pushing chairs back from the table, is a standard in dining rooms. Add Fypon chair rail moulding to break up the room and consider painting (or wallpapering) in different colors above and below the moulding.

Project 2 – Truly set the dining room off by adding pilasters and a crosshead to the entry way area of the room. Usually reserved for the home exterior, this immediately gives a special welcoming message for guests joining you for dinner.

Project 3 – To enhance the elegance of a dining room, install a wall niche at a focal location and then use the niche to display a favorite piece of art or a prominent flower arrangement.

Project 4 – Install a two-piece Fypon ceiling medallion around the top of a light fixture or ceiling fan. The interlocking pieces fit snuggly together so you don’t have to take down the fixture or worry about dealing with electrical systems.

Project 5 – Top off the interiors of windows in the dining room with a pediment above a window surround. Be subtle and add a simple crosshead or be bold and add a rams head, sunburst, peaked cap or acorn pediment to draw attention to the windows.
